I wanted to like this more than I did. I've enjoyed novels from Abaddon Books enormously in the past, with some of their stand alone zombie novels (from Simon Bestwick, Gary McMahon, and Paul Finch) among the strongest of that sub genre that I've read in the last few years. I've enjoyed Green's short fiction for the Warhammer Universe too. Unfortunately, though I was keen to find a steampunk series that would plug the gap between George Mann releases, this one fails for me. It's like the novelisation of a shallow, effects driven summer blockbuster, all larger than life action sequences, with little sense in the plotting or motivation underlying it all. It's purple-prosed, comic book fun, I suppose, but not for me.
